In Reply to: Henry Riley Lightner by Kelly Demaree of 512

Your Henry Riley was born Oct 1899 and was a son of Eli Lightner (28 Nov 1867 - 27 Aopr 1923) and Lucy Ellen Florence (born June 1879).

Eli Lightner was a son of William Henry Lightner (c. 1826 - 14 June 1897) and Sarah Hensley (Apr 1829 - 1905).

William Henry Lightner (says he was born in Pa) was a son of Allen Lightner and this is where it gets murky. He also went by the name of Allen Little in various censuses and sometimes said he was born in Pa and sometimes in Va. His age varies, but it look as though he was born abt 1780, probably in Pa. There is quite a bit about this family on this Lightner site. I've run into Allen before as someone tried to put him as a son of Ludwig Lightner (he is not - this is the family I've been researching for a decade).
